AJ Odudu, 33, has branded fellow Strictly 2021 contestant, Sara Davies, 37, the show’s “teacher’s pet”. AJ will be taking part in Strictly, along with Sara and 13 other stars.

What a teacher’s pet

AJ Odudu

In a new interview with Express.co.uk, AJ was asked who her competition in the show would be, and how she felt about her fellow contestants.

She said: “Sara takes notes in meetings and then scans them, makes them PDF form, and then puts a PDF folder into a WhatsApp group.

“What a teacher’s pet.”

Justifying what she said, AJ added: “This is why she is an absolute boss.

“I can’t wait to spend more time with Sara because I feel in general, she is really going to sort my life out.”

Sara is a very well respected businesswoman, having received over 30 business awards.

In 2016, she also received an MBE for her services to the economy.

Sara became a regular face on our screens when she joined the Dragons’ Den panel in 2019 for its 17th series.

With this amazing portfolio, it is no surprise TV presenter AJ believes she will be able to learn something from the Dragons’ Den panellist.

When AJ was asked who her biggest competition is on the show, she could not pick.

She said: “To be honest I feel like they are all my biggest competition.

“Well and truly they are all really famous and all really successful.

“They are all really fit and funny.”

AJ herself is a television presenter, best known for co-presenting Big Brother’s Bit on the Side with Rylan Clark-Neal and Emma Willis in 2013.

Since 2018, she has been the backstage presenter of The Voice.

More recently, in July 2021, she was crowned the winner of Celebrity Karaoke Club on ITV2.

It was also announced in July that she would be co-hosting a revival episode of The Big Breakfast, alongside Mo Gilligan.

Alongside her other commitments, AJ will now be taking part in the latest season of Strictly Come Dancing, and claims she is one of the show’s biggest fans.

She said: “I’m not one of those people they have asked me for the last 10 years and they’ve been so busy.

“No, the opportunity came up and I was straight in there.”

Strictly Come Dancing will return to our screens on September 18.
